Boateng was sent off in the 73rd minute of FC Bayern's loss to Karlsruher. The centerback's feet became tangled with a Karlsruher attacker, who drew the penalty. Boateng was shown the red card for his reckless play. KSC converted the penalty to beat Bayern 2-1 in their only friendly of the winterpause.
Bayern's next friendly will likely be in the summer. After a busy Euro 2016 (victory?), Boateng will deserve a rest anyway.
Friday, Bayern Munich return to the field in the Bundesliga for the first match of the Rückrunde when they take on Hamburg at the Imtech Arena.
